I think Hidden Valley is the most popular campground in JTNP. It's full of giant boulders and Joshua Tree's and lot's of happy campers.

Tons of places to take some great pictures and a beautiful place to watch the sunset since you get a great view of the West. There’s a bunch of picnic areas to have lunch or eve an early dinner as well. Awesome views!

1 mile loop, lots of great rock formations where you’ll undoubtedly spot rock climbers. We also enjoyed the nearby picnic area for lunch.
